Multiple vlans per port

Hi,

I would like to know whether are there cisco switches that can configure multiple vlans per port? I don't mean trunking.

The reason of doing so is because I have 2 vlans with same range of ip addresses and I want some ports/servers to be accessed by the 2 vlans.

Thanks.

Re: Multiple vlans per port

Normally a port can belong to single vlan.but if you want a server to be in multiple vlans then you have put NIC card which supports IEEE 802.1Q specification like 3Com Fast EtherLink PCI TX Server Adapter.

Re: Multiple vlans per port

Some switched do support multi-vlan ports ie. 2900 & 3500XL. Below is extract from Cisco document and link...

Multi-VLAN

A multi-VLAN port can belong to up to 250 VLANs (some models only support 64 VLANs) and is manually assigned. You cannot configure a multi-VLAN port when a trunk is configured on the switch. VLAN traffic on the multi-VLAN port is not encapsulated.
